About This Artist
Functional pottery is Paul Eshelman's cultural attempt, through the material of clay, to bring order and human dignity to the merely physical act of consuming food and drink. As his pots are used daily, Paul's hope is that they carry measures of quiet and nourishment for body and spirit. He imagines people at a dinner table, workspace, or office cubicle where food and drink are served and humanized by hospitable, well-ordered pots. All may safely be used in the microwave and dishwasher.

A: I enjoy taking an amorphous material and forming vessels.
A: Right now, happy and enthusiastic folks who purchase and use my work.
